In the case of the producers from renewable sources and/or cogeneration of heat and electricity the costs of the connection are covered by the owner of investor. The costs of any electricity network reinforcement or modification of the network, due to the connection of such power plants are covered by the system operator. These costs include the necessary studies and analyses (Article 70 of the EA).
When connecting a power plant causes disproportional costs, the connection can only be made if the owner, or the investor, covers these costs. The producers of electricity from renewable sources and/or the cogeneration of heat and electricity cover only a part of the disproportional costs. The system operators of the transmission and distribution networks produce and publish the rules for the division of the costs for the network reinforcement. When preparing these rules the operators take into account all the network users making use of a connection (Article 71 of the EA).
